Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet on sale for £188

British retailer John Lewis is selling the Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet in white for £188 after factoring in a £50 cashback from the Korean giant. The deal is available until the end of December, though it's worth mentioning that the silver version of the tablet costs nearly £250 - even after the cashback offer.

The device is a refresh of the original 10in Galaxy Tab that was launched last year; in addition to the system-on-chip, the main difference is the PLS display.

The Samsung Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 comes with a two-year warranty, up to 10 hours battery life, a dual-core system-on-chip clocked at 1GHz, 1GB of RAM, 16GB onboard storage, a microSD card slot, a 10.1in display with a 1,280 x 800 pixel resolution, Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich, a 3-megapixel rear camera with 720p HD video recording, a front-facing camera, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth 3.0 and USB 2.0. The P5110, as it is also known, weighs under 600g and is less than 10mm thick.

The price of the Galaxy Tab 2 10.1 tablet is likely falling so fast in response to the launch of the Google Nexus 10, which features much better hardware, the highest resolution display on the market and a starting price of just over £300.
